Yeah I would sum up my current situation by calling it really nasty pms followed by sweet relief. Never thought I'd say that about my period! lol But yeah it does seem like it drags out. Maybe a little over a week? I was wondering if I had PMS this bad before- I can't remember. I don't think so. I bet there's a good herb or tea that will take the edge off. I need to follow up with my naturopath. And I should probably journal. I think our bodies are cleansing and it's so wonderful to be past that awful stage where I wasn't sure I'd ever know any kind of joy or peace again. :) There is definitely hope. It just takes time.
Happy Holidays to you as well!
